Acting must really run in Angelina Jolie's family blood.
When she was just seven years old, she got her first big screen role in her dad Jon Voight's "Lookin' To Get Out," and now her daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt is all set for her Hollywood debut at the tender age of four.
Yep, Walt Disney Studios confirmed today that Vivienne Jolie-Pitt (Knox's twin and one of Angelina's six children with fiancé Brad Pitt) will have a cameo in Jolie's "Maleficient," the movie she's currently filming about the backstory of the titular "Sleeping Beauty" villain. Get More »

The beautiful princess looking for love, the evil stepmother thwarting her every move, the handsome prince who comes to her rescue -- all are classic fairy tale characters that have come to life on the big screen, ever since the invention of movies.
"Snow White and the Huntsman" is just the latest cinematic re-telling of a classic fairy tale, following closely on the heels of the similarly Snow White-centric "Mirror Mirror." These types of films may be experiencing a renaissance, as there are many more movies based on fairy tales in the pipeline, with top talent attached. Here's a look at what's coming to a movie theater near you. Get More »
Ever since Disney announced "Maleficent," the live action adaptation of their classic animated hit "Sleeping Beauty," fans have been wondering who would step into the role of Prince Charming (aka Prince Phillip for those nitpickers out there).
After all, with Angelina Jolie on board as the iconic evil sorceress, the film would need someone equally awesome to battle her dragon form. Michael Fassbender, maybe? Matt Damon? Perhaps even Brad Pitt himself?
With each casting announcement, Disney's "Maleficent" becomes a little more intriguing.
Temple joins the likes of Angelina Jolie (who'll play the titular Maleficent, the witch who cursed Aurora into becoming Sleeping Beauty and whose perspective the film will draw from), India Eisley (a younger version of Jolie's Maleficent), Elle Fanning (the Aurora character), Sam Riley, Sharlto Copley, Lesley Manville, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson and Kenneth Cranham for the picture.

Eisley joins a bevy of other stars newly signed on, including Sam Riley ("On the Road"), Lesley Manville ("Another Year") and Kenneth Cranham ("Layer Cake") in this Robert Stromberg-directed reboot of the classic fairytale, the Hollywood Wiretap reports. Get More »
Elle Fanning will soon no longer be able to avoid the spindles of spinning wheels.
"Maleficent" has long had its wicked witch in Angelina Jolie, and now the "Sleeping Beauty" re-imagining has its, well, Sleeping Beauty in the form of the "Super 8" star, according to Twitch.
No details on the plot of "Maleficent" have been revealed other than it will focus on the title villainess, a scorned witch who curses Princess Aurora, the infant daughter of a king, proclaiming that before the sun sets on her sixteenth birthday, she will prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die (at least according to Disney's 1959 animated version of the story).

Let's play a game called "Directorial Musical Chairs."
Here's how you play: There are only a few film directors with enough success under their belt to be considered to have blockbuster potential. When you have a property like Disney's "Maleficient," a re-imagining of "Sleeping Beauty" told from the green-skinned villain's point of view, a studio wants a director who can deliver an eye-popping spectacle with that oh-so-desired "edge."
Our players for today: Tim Burton ("Alice In Wonderland"), David Yates ("Harry Potter"), Darren Aronofsky ("Black Swan") and David O. Russell ("The Fighter"). Get More »
Someone else is going to have to teach Angelina Jolie how to transform into a dragon.
Tim Burton won't stop being one of Disney's ace-in-the-hole directors any time soon, but that doesn't mean he'll be calling the shots on everything the Mouse throws at him. Case in point: Burton's already loose attachment to "Maleficent" is now no attachment at all, according to Heat Vision.
Talk of Burton doing a version of "Sleeping Beauty" from the point of view of the evil queen started soon after the release of last year's "Alice in Wonderland," with Angelina Jolie attached to play the green-skinned villainess. Get More »
